“(…) if you’ve heard the band before, the grace that lured you in in the first place is well accounted for here, as Orsak:Oslo continue to explore the peaceful moments within moments through audio.The Obelisk

Comments the band: “The Swell captured the essence of Orsak:Oslo in just minutes. After being separated by borders for nearly 3 years, these seven minutes of music is what came to life after we finally met again.-the fact that three years of bottled up creative energy ended up with this slow, churning and almost anticlimactic groove is perhaps a mystery to some, but it is immensely unveiling of how we fashion songs: We do this first and foremost to make meaningful musical conversations and expressions.-The steady ebb and flow from the guitars in combination with the heavy, but almost loitering drum beat gives us a feeling of rising waters. It’s like the oceans reclaiming their old territories, taking back the land that was once part of the ocean floor.”

Orsak:Oslo is one of those hidden gems, always grinding, always perfecting the imperfections. The four-piece collaboration, made up of both Swedish and Norwegian musicians from Gothenburg and Oslo, have been hanging around the underground for years, steadily pawing its way with a mellow, laidback, but yet intense sound.  «068 The Swell»  starts off with an Orsak:Oslo benchmark-groove. And they don´t let go. They never do. Orsak:Oslo takes you on a journey right off the bat, and the trip feels delicious.
